Bengals re-signed exclusive rights free agent LB Vincent Rey to a one-year, $630,000 contract.

Rey recorded 22 tackles in 16 games mainly as a special teamer in 2012, and he'll revert back to that role this upcoming season while backing up the three linebacker spots.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Cowboys believe unsigned franchise player Dez Bryant is bluffing about holding out and missing games.

The two sides met Friday, and Cole reports "no progress" was made. Cole went as far as to say the Cowboys believe Bryant is having money problems and wouldn't be able to afford missing paychecks. Dallas isn't budging off the long-term offer it already made to Bryant and will either tell him to sign the deal or play out the season on the one-year, $12.82 million franchise tender.

NFL suspended Chargers TE Antonio Gates four games for violating the league's PED policy.

This one is a shocker. Headed into his 13th NFL campaign, Gates has always been a model NFL citizen, both on- and off-the-field. In a statement, Gates said he never "knowingly" ingested a banned substance. While possibly true, it's the oldest PED excuse in the book. Now 35, Gates has been thus far ageless as Philip Rivers' go-to target, but his absence will free up a massive amount of looks for Keenan Allen and Stevie Johnson, and give Ladarius Green the opportunity he's deserved for some time now. Missing such a huge chunk of the fantasy season right off the bat, it's hard to sell Gates as a TE1.

NFL suspended Cowboys MLB Rolando McClain four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

McClain was originally believed to be facing a four-game fine, which would have meant three failed tests. A fourth failed test triggers a suspension. McClain simply can't stay out of his own way, though this is his first league-imposed suspension. It would likely be his second had he not "retired" in May 2013. McClain is coming off a renaissance year for the Cowboys, but is recovering from a knee scope in addition to his suspension. The end to his 2014-15 was marred by repeated head issues. McClain turns 26 in July. He's likely one strike away from being out of the NFL.

NFL suspended Jets DL Sheldon Richardson four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

"I apologize for letting down my family, teammates, this organization and the fans," Richardson said in a statement. With the Jets on bye in Week 5, Richardson won't make his season debut until Oct. 18 against the Redskins. It's a massive blow for Todd Bowles' defense, as Richardson will miss contests against the Browns, Colts, Eagles and Dolphins. Alongside an equally-dominant Mo Wilkerson, Richardson was one of the league's best defenders last season. His absence will ramp up the pressure on No. 6 overall pick Leonard Williams. Richardson has always been outspoken, but had previously avoided off-the-field drama through his first two years in the NFL.

CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher expects Zach Ertz to make a "sizable jump in snaps" this season.

Ertz played 40.5 percent of the snaps as a rookie in 2013 and only progressed to 50.3 percent last year. Too often he was watching from the sideline as superior blocker Brent Celek held the edge in Chip Kelly's scheme. Celek returns for his ninth season in Philly, but Ertz is expected to surpass him on the back of improvement in the blocking department. We know the Eagles need him on the field as a receiver now that Jeremy Maclin is gone -- especially in red zone. Ertz will break out if he gets roughly 75 percent of the snaps.

Coach Mike Pettine referred to TE Rob Housler as "the ideal 'F.'"

The "F" position refers to the move tight end spot, a player that is often detached from the line. That's where Housler, a 6'5/248 specimen with 4.55 speed and a 37-inch vertical, wins. Don't be surprised if he breaks his previous career-high of 45 catches, set in 2012. Housler's current ADP is undrafted in standard-sized leagues.

The Florida Times Union projects Marqise Lee as the Jags' No. 3 wideout entering camp, behind Allen Hurns.

Lee's rookie year started with a nagging hamstring issue and ended with some disappointing on-field performances. Then he missed most of the offseason program due to a knee issue. Lee will have ground to make up if he's going to beat out Hurns for the right to line up opposite rising stud Allen Robinson in two-wide sets. We want more upside in our late-round fliers.

Todd Gurley (ACL surgery) will soon meet with Dr. James Andrews for a recheck of his surgically repaired knee.

The meeting will take place "in the next few weeks." Gurley's recovery is believed to have gone on free of setbacks, but that won't be officially determined until Dr. Andrews sees the knee. It's also possible when they meet that Gurley will be cleared for some activity before training camp, which of course would be excellent news for Gurley's chances of playing in Week 1.

Sources tell Bleacher Report's Jason Cole that contract-year QB Russell Wilson is looking to become the highest-paid player in the NFL.

It's not a surprise. In the prime of his career, Wilson is coming off back-to-back Super Bowl appearances, as well as by far his best season. It would be more noteworthy if he was starting negotiations below the "highest-paid" threshold. Going by average-annual value, Aaron Rodgers is the league's top-paid player. His five-year, $110 million deal is worth $22 million per season.

A decision on Tom Brady's appeal is not expected until mid- or late-July.

Article 46 of the CBA requires a decision to be issued "as soon as practicable." As we've seen before in cases like this, it's going to take a while. The post-hearing briefs in the appeal aren't even due until late next week, and then Roger Goodell will digest them. If Brady's camp isn't happy with the ruling, he'll then challenge the NFL in court. PFT suggests that path could lead to Brady being under center in Week 1 against the Steelers as the case gets tied up in the courts.

A league source tells Profootballtalk.com that Tom Brady "simply reiterated his denial" regarding involvement in or knowledge of deflating footballs during Tuesday's appeal with commissioner Roger Goodell, and "the answers were regarded by some in the room as not entirely credible."

Reports following Brady's meeting with Goodell indicated Tom Terrific gave an "A+ performance," but it seems league officials disagree. Brady reportedly attacked the Wells Report and stated he "didn't do anything wrong." PFT's Mike Florio -- a former attorney -- believes it is "unlikely" that Goodell will "fully exonerate" Brady, and may opt to uphold his four-game suspension.
